Murphy has been feeling soreness in his side for close to a week and the Indians finally decided to give him an extended period of rest. This is the second knee-related disabled list stint for Swisher, who also has a minor right wrist injury. Both players have had disappointing seasons offensively for the 58-59 Tribe.

Cleveland recalled Tyler Holt and Zach Walters from Triple-A to fill the vacant 25-man roster spots.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
